Raptors fire coach after playoff ouster

Raptors fire coach after playoff ouster

The move was confirmed by Raptors president Masai Ujiri.

And now, we wait.

The post Tyronn Lue reacts to Raptors firing coach Dwane Casey appeared first on Cavs Nation. It will be a massive decision. Replacing Casey will not fix everything - Ujiri acknowledged Friday that the roster is imperfect - but it is the simplest way to send the message that the status quo is not good enough.

Despite their regular season success, the team was swept in the second-round of the playoffs by LeBron's Cleveland Cavaliers, making it the second time in a row that LeBron has knocked Toronto out of championship contention.

The announcement comes two days after Casey was named Coach of the Year by his peers.

Ujiri and Casey have butted heads at times, just as Casey and star point guard Kyle Lowry did, a callback to Casey's old boss George Karl clashing with the great Gary Payton in their Seattle days. Those are the kind of results that can get coaches fired.

All indications are he won't. The market will be tested and if somebody wants one of the team's bad contracts with a reasonable sweetener, that will be looked at as well. I mean, he got Coach of the Year and then you get fired the next day. Toronto was ranked in the top five for offensive and defensive efficiency. "He was instrumental in creating the identity and culture of who we are as a team, and we are so proud of that". Nurse is considered the favorite among the three.

And beyond his basketball accomplishments, Casey will be remembered for the dignity and class with which he carried himself, a friendly, fatherly figure who addressed every member of the media by their first name, even those rarely around the team. "In terms of collaboration, I don't think I'll work with a better person". It wasn't easy for coach Casey to win the East. It's a strong voice. Whatever that person is bringing to the table has to be heard by the players, and has to be heard well. "Just grateful. Just Casey". He's right on that.

Budenholzer won the 2014-15 Coach of the Year award.

"After careful consideration, I have decided this is a very hard but necessary step the franchise must take", Masai Ujiri, Toronto's team president, said in a statement.

The news was first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. It was probably my fault that I didn't make it clear that we wanted to trap him and get the ball out of his hands. But the National Basketball Association is a star-driven league, and while LeBron rose to the occasion, the Raptors top players faded at the worst times during the second round series. I leave with our veterans I have exit interviews with them later on, after the emotions are all done, but I called them to call them that this decision has been made, but no, they are not those type of guys, they don't come and tell me, there's no negativity in our organization like that.
